Hi. My names is Alex Cecilio, and I'm going to show you how to pixelate in Illustrator. So, I've drawn my image, and I'm going to go to my selection tool, which is the black arrow. I'm going to select all of my shapes. And then you're going to go up to effect, pixelate. And then there's four different options. You can play with all of them. I'll just show you an example of that one. You can keep going back and trying different ones. And you can play around with cell size, and the bigger they are the bigger the pixels are going to be. And this one you can pick what medium your pixels are going to be like. So, you can do all sorts of fun things with that. And the last one will be pointalized. And this one will be similar to the last one. And what that did is it took all the color information within the shape and it made it basically all highly saturated, contrasted and pointalized. And that is how you pixelate. I'd say the color half tone is probably the best one. And that is how you pixelate. My name is Alex and this is how you pixelate in Illustrator. Thank you.
